LEGO Batman 2 officially announced

Publish date:

We all knew it was coming, but Warner Bros has confirmed that Batman will once again get the LEGO treatment this year.

As was previously leaked, this time the Dark Knight will be joined by other DC Comics superheroes including Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.

The game will feature the usual co-op gameplay that LEGO games are known for and an all-new storyline that sees Gotham City besieged by the Joker and Lex Luthor.

The original LEGO Batman was released in 2008 and has sold more than 11m units worldwide.

"LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes builds upon the action and cooperative gameplay experience established in our best-selling LEGO video game to date," said TT Games MD Tom Stone.

LEGO Batman 2 will be released this summer for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC, DS, 3DS and Vita.
